,I Children's Concepts at Tonypancty. "Happy Hearts'' was the theme of a very interesting children's concert held at Bethel (E.B.) Chapel on Thursday last, and rendered by the Juvenile Choir, under the conductot'sllip of Mrs. Stephen Hughes. The president for the evening was Mrs. W. P. Nicholas, The Garth. Trealaw, who said it gave her great pleasure to be there, although, when .she saw the pro- gramme announcing an address by the president, her heart sank witMn her and she felt like calling upon one of the Suffragettes to come and help her. How- evef, brevity of speech, she said, was her custom, and she would not depart from it that night. She then called upon Mrs. Hughes to proceed with the performance. "Happy Hearts was preceded by a mis- cellaneous programme, which included the following —" The Washerwomen." These little folk, each with a pail, rubbed and scrubbed to the refrain, Squeeze, squeeze, squeeze, and wring, wring, wring." This item highly delighted the audience. Next cam& a, number of girls dressed in Welsh costumes, their nannel aprons and sugar-loaf hats giving them a picturesque appearance, whilst their tea- sipping was indeed very amusing. Much mirth was provoked by the Sunra.gettes appearing on the stage waving a banner, bearing; the inscription Women, Have Your Ri,hts," and singing When we get to Parliament," If the Women say they must, they will go," and "Don't forget it." Whatever ambitions they had, however, soon vanished when a number of "Police'' entered and' cleared the platform. It was very amusing to wit- g ness the desperate struggle on the part of a very diminutive constable who arrested a stalwart Suffragette. The new baby, the Lullaby" was very sweetly sung by a little lady dressed in white and a little gentleman in blue. The" Con- stables," little lads from about 3 feet upwards, very creditably went through their drills, and the swing of their clubs showed the wotdd-be peace-breaker what to expect if they fell into their hands. The gipsies, gaudily dressed ani nourish- ing their tambourines, completed the hrst part. Part 2, "Happy Heart's," consisted of 33 items, and took the form of a birthday party, the hostess taking her seat as becometh a queen and acting her' part with grace. Solos, games, and choruses were well rendered. Mrs. Hughes is to be complimented on the success of the effort, which must have entailed a great deal of assiduous labour. Mr. W. Ludlow fulfilled the duties of accompanist in a very emeient manner. The performance was repeated on Saturday, when the Rev. H. Lenton Staines presided over another large audi- ence. Owing to the great success attained, and at the request of many friends, the performance will be repeated on Good Friday.
